As the kitchen forms an integral part of the house, the science of Vastu is to enhance the aura of the kitchen, taking into consideration certain essential elements. These include the direction, in which the kitchen is located, placements of the windows and doors in the kitchen, location of the kitchen in the house, placement of electronic gadgets, gas cylinder, refrigerator and even the sink.
Direction of kitchen:
Ideal if the kitchen is made in the south-east corner of the house. Another great option is the north-west corner of the house. The south-east corner is considered the best as the element of fire governs in this direction.
Placement of Gas Stove
The cooking gas is almost as essential as the placement of the kitchen in the house. Therefore, it too should be in the south-east direction. This is because when a person cooks food they should be facing to the east only.
Placement of the sink and taps
Sinks and taps in the kitchen indicate flowing water. They should be placed in the north-east direction and away from the cooking stove. This is because fire and water are opposite elements and they repel each other.
Placement of the Refrigerator
If the kitchen houses the refrigerator then it should be placed in the south-west direction but be kept at least a foot away from the corner. Avoid placing it in the north-east direction.
Placement of exhaust fans and windows
Windows are important too as Vastu says that one or two windows in the kitchen are a must! An air hole or an exhaust is a must and it should be placed in the east in the kitchen. Windows – large or small should be placed in the east while if there are ventilators, it should be placed in the southern direction.
Placement of electrical appliances
Today, the kitchen is filled with ovens, microwaves, heaters etc. These should be placed in the south or the south-east direction of the kitchen. Please note, these appliances should never be placed in the north-east direction.
Placement of storage
We need storage for food grains, crockery, utensils etc. The storage cupboards should be made on the southern or western walls in the kitchen. It is best to avoid the north and east side walls.

Drinking water vessels
be it an earthen pot, filter, RO machine etc. these should be placed in the north-east side.
Kitchen Flooring
Vetrified tiles, marble or mosaic are great options for kitchen flooring. They are practical too as they are hard, impermeable and of course, resistant to scratches.
Avoid using black color in the kitchen and use vibrant colors such as yellow, rose, chocolate brown, green, orange or red.
Placement of kitchen in the house
Ensure that kitchen doesn’t share a wall with the toilet or bathroom. it is important to ensure that the kitchen is never made below a bathroom or toilet.
